Samsung Instinct
SamsungのInstinctをiPhoneの偽物と言うにしても,ちょっとグロテスクな形くらいしか違わない.
本当の話,パッケージさえもクパチーノから来たかのように見える.
ボタン無しで,一枚岩構造,オールタッチスクリーンのInstinctは,瞬く間に人気になった.
実際,重さも大きさもiPhoneとほぼ一緒で,幅が5mm細い.
2008年の携帯電話に期待される機能が全て入っている.
3G, GPS, 200万画素カメラ(ビデオレコード可能), メール,ブラウザなどだ/
しかしInstinctはこれだけではない.
新しい機能を追加し,要求を留めるライバルたちに対抗している(この先発売の機種でさえも).
ユーザの感触をフィードバックをし,タッチスクリーン作業を調整したり,
タイピング無しでキー入力出来るボイスコントロールなどだ.

Samsung Instinct
To call the Samsung Instinct an iPhone knockoff would be an understatement of grotesque proportions. Seriously: Even the packaging looks like it came straight outta Cupertino.
With its buttonless face and black monolithic look, the all-touchscreen Instinct is immediately familiar: It's virtually the same weight and size as the iPhone, only about two-tenths of an inch narrower. Most of the expected specs for any 2008 handset are here: 3G, GPS, 2-megapixel camera (with video recording), and full e-mail and web browsing features. But the Instinct doesn't stop there; it tries to stake a claim on new ground by adding features its arch rival (even the upcoming version) skips: Haptic feedback buzzes below your fingertip when you work the touchscreen, and voice control lets you do certain tasks sans typing.

もちろん,iPhoneが成功した本当の理由はOSだ.
Instinctもそれに追いつこうとしている.
直感的で軽快に動くことは,まだAppleほど洗練されていない.
ブラウザはつぎはぎだらけで,無作法なズームボタンがiPhoneの「ピンチ」の代わりにある.
同じように,幅の狭いボディのせいで,iPhoneより0.5インチ画面が小さくなっていて,
ウェブページのサイズには厳しい.
またInstinctでのタイピングは難しい.
ホップアップで教えてくれないので,どのボタンを押したのか分からない.
私は,URLを入力するのに何度も失敗している.
ただでさえ遅いiPhoneの入力より遅く入力しているのに..
最後は,指より爪をつかうようになった.

Of course, the real reason for the iPhone's success is its operating system, and here the Instinct is still playing catchup. While everything is intuitive and pretty zippy, it's still not quite as polished as Apple's version. The web browser shows some terribly rough patches, a crude zoom button stands in for the iPhone's sophisticated "pinch" system. As well, the narrower body trims nearly a half inch off the iPhone's screen size, which really cramps page size. Even typing on the Instinct can be rocky, as there's no pop-up indicator to show you what button you're actually hitting. I made so many mistakes in notes and web URLs that typing slowed to a painful crawl even by iPhone's slow standards. It got so bad I ended up using a fingernail to type instead of my fingertip.

音声品質は普通だ.素晴らしくはないが,
音楽再生品質は良いと感じる.
バッテリーは通話で5時間.
スマートフォンにしては凄くはないが,
まあiPhone 3Gの実際のバッテリーの持ちがわかってから比べるべきだろう.
Instinctは,iPhone 3Gを買おうとするAppleの信者に売り込みはしていないが,
スマートフォンのA席にあたる,十分に良いランク携帯だ.
まあ,不幸にもSprint社の縛り契約の人は,一度手に取ってみるべきだ.
-Christopher Null

Call quality is fair, not great, but music playback is considerably higher fidelity. Battery life is under five hours of talk time. That's not great for a smartphone, but we'll have to wait and see how it compares to the iPhone 3G in real-world testing.
The Instinct won't woo the Apple faithful from upgrading to the iPhone 3G, but it's definitely good enough to rank as a solid second-tier player in the smartphone space. If nothing else, if you have the misfortune to be locked into a long Sprint cellular plan from which you can't escape, pick up one immediately. —Christopher Null

WIRED: Turn-by-turn GPS navigation is very responsive, generally accurate and updates quickly. Easily customizable home screen. Painless e-mail setup works well with numerous hosts. Decent multimedia options (included with $99 all-you-can-eat service plan) include copious TV options. Works with any screen-tapping implement (not just your finger).
TIRED: No WiFi. Clearly cellphone-quality photos. No internal storage: 2-GB microSD card included (upgradeable to 8 GB). Can't edit attachments. Web browser needs a serious reworking. Includes a stylus ... but provides no slot to stow it.
Price/maker: $130 (with 2-year contract), nowisgood.com
